The DStv Content Creator Awards 2024 are officially open! This announcement was made during the grand reveal of the brand-new website, with DStv Namibia proudly announced as the flagship sponsor for this year’s event.

The awards, slated for later this year, promise glitz, glamour, and a celebration of the vibrant content creator community. The public can now nominate their favourite content creators who could win various prizes at an award ceremony.

MultiChoice Namibia Corporate Affairs Manager Elzita Beukes said that content creation has turned into a tool crucial to connecting people worldwide.

“The world has evolved into a digital age where content has become more than just information. It’s a tool that has been crucial in connecting people worldwide.

“Similar to content creators, DStv is a home of entertainment that is deeply rooted in Namibia and brings people together through our valuable products and services. Therefore, we’d like to encourage the public to put a spotlight on the conversation starters, authentic storytellers, and overall impact makers by nominating them on the DStv Content Creator Awards platform,” Beukes said.

The new, interactive website is live, featuring a sleek, minimalistic, incredibly user-friendly design. The seamless nomination process offers comprehensive information on various categories such as Content Creator of the Year, Fashion & Lifestyle Award, Foodie Award, Influencer Award, Traditional/Cultural Award, and more.

Zulu Boy from the Namibia Content Creators’ team shared, “For many years, we have been creating content, and now is our chance to be celebrated. With these awards, we want to inspire creatives to share their stories, encourage creativity and innovation, and recognize Namibian content on a national level.”

Nominations are open now until July 31st, so don’t delay! Only four content creators will be shortlisted in each category, with the public voting for their favourites. The shortlisted creators will be announced at the nominee event in August, leading to several content creator workshops and the grand awards ceremony in November 2024.
